I Would like to have the Lyrics and TALam of this song.
A Hindu Link says Roopakam, and tuned by TM Tyagarajan, but a Radio Pgm Dnld announces the TALam as Adi TALam, Tishra Nadai.

TIA

I got this from mayyam forum given our Lakshmanji, as always:

pAhi pAhi bAla gaNapatE. rAgA: hamsadhvani. t/Eka or rUpaka tALA.
P: pAhi pAhi bAla gaNapatE bhava suta guNanidhE
A: dEhi mudam shrtajana patE sindhura mukha varada sumatE
C1: bhakta cidambara vinuta bAla nayana phaNI sahita
shuddha hrdaya sujana hita sura jana gaNa pApahata
2: mUSika vAhana catura mOdaka dhara kamala kara
pOSita munijana nikara bhUsura pUjita bhavahara
3: ghaTa muni vandita caraNa kAruNyAmbudhi karaNa
naTana catura nAgAbharaNa ranjita rajanIca kiraNa

Some corrections are warranted, this being a Samskritam composition.

C1 : baala nayana --> phaala nayana ; gaNa pApahata --> ghana paapahata
C3 : ghaTa muni --> ghaTaja muni ( Agastya muni ) ; rajanIca kiraNa --> rajaniikara vara ( another version is gajEndra vadana )

Lakshman-ji,

Do we have a system to ensure that the suggested corrections are correct?
In this case,

'bAla nayana' is acceptable.
'sura-jana-gaNa' is appropriate.
'ghaTa muni' too is fine.

In our anxiety to 'correct', we should not attempt to 'change' the lyrics!

As for ‘rajanica kiraNa’, most probably it is a typo; it may be ‘rajanicara kiraNa’

One can argue that Shri Mazhavai Chidambara Bharati should have opted for other expressions in the place of what he has used. But such personal opinions cannot be the basis for changing the lyrics of Shri Bharati.

The only way to ensure the correct lyrics is to find the song printed in either telugu, kannaDa or dEvanAgari script. It is the tamizh script without subscripts that creates the problem.
